Thumbs up Top Gear: Porsche Boxster Vs. BMW Z4 Vs. Honda S2000 Part 2

The Stig races the Porsche Boxster, the BMW Z4 and the Honda S2000 against the clock on the Top Gear Test Track and finds out which is the fastest.

Top Gear is a great show. Wonder how these cars would stack up against each other today.

Ask and ye shall receive. First off Top Gear: [ame]http://youtube.com/watch?v=_0wsGvY_IQw&mode=related&search=[/ame] And next we have Fifth Gear: [ame]http://youtube.com/watch?v=xnJTTeNyk2s[/ame]
And while not quite the same match up, it is a good match up. And one I think you especially will enjoy. Lock and load. [ame]http://youtube.com/watch?v=x8LQF5tuwJ8[/ame]

Great videos! So much fun at one point I laughed so loud at work, a couple of colleagues came by to see what the fuss was about... oopps!

BTW, from what I can tell the second video of the Boxster S versus the regular Z4 is actually only a regular Boxster, this is evidenced by the lack of the third intake in the center of the front facia and brief mention during the video about 240hp at then end of the video a comment about the 5-speed gearbox.

Yes, I heard that, too. Apples to oranges if they use the "M" but not the "S"
